Go outside and look up!

Tonight, the biggest, brightest moon of the year, a perigee full moon will be lighting up the night. They say that if there's snow on the ground to bounce the moonlight, it will create enough light to read a newspaper. Here in the Hudson Valley we're mid snowstorm, and I suspect it won't clear up quickly enough to give us a look. So please howl at this huge moon for me. Perigee is the point where the moon gets closest to the Earth in orbit, and this is the one and only chance to look so closely this year.
